We are in a world where businesses need to constantly evolve and adapt to meet customer needs to remain competitive. With changing business models and financial needs, it is more important than ever for finance teams to transform and drive value for their organisations. As a result, CFOs now need to understand their evolving roles as well as the skills and competencies their teams require to navigate this transformation.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant business models have had to change overnight and finance professionals need to be nimble to remain relevant growth-drivers for their organisations.

It is essential to upskill your team in today’s disruptive business environment. As a finance professional, you must know:

  • How to reimagine your company’s finance function?
  • How to lead your finance team through challenging times?
  • How today’s technology affects finance functions?
  • How finance will operate in the future and the resources and skills needed?

Technology has constantly evolved in the past several years changing what we do and creating a degree of automation and efficiency that we haven’t seen before. Most finance organisations are recognising the need to change what they have done in the past, modernise their infrastructure, and start moving towards more proactive collaborative model.

Three key questions to help professionals look forward:

  • What does it mean to be a finance professional in the future?
  • What would the finance function look like?
  • How to bring value to the organisation?

Organisations should focus on why and how the business environment is changing and how the finance team can prepare for and respond to these changes.
